Patching in Windows 7

Thanks for the link, but could you help me with the syntax? Where exactly should doom2.wad be placed and what is the syntax? The help file is confusing.

Place bspatch.exe, Doom 2 IWAD, and the patch file you need in the same directory.

For example, running this command will upgrade Doom2.wad v1.666 to v1.9:

bspatch.exe doom2.wad doom219.wad 1666_19
"doom219.wad" will be the upgraded IWAD.

Or run this command to overwrite the old IWAD:
bspatch.exe doom2.wad doom2.wad 1666_19

You can always use the original patches with DOSBox, assuming the normal command line in Windows 7 is retarded. Some patches don't show up in the Doomworld database because it is a bit myopic and only shows ZIP files, so one needs to head over directly to idstuff on any mirror.

Including Hexen ones? I couldn't patch it, because DOSBox doesn't keep file dates.

Did you try using the command line from Windows directly to apply that patch?
